These editorials by Harold W. Percival represent the complete
collection published in The Word magazine between
1904 and 1917. Approximately one hundred years in age, the
original monthly magazines are now very rare. The twenty-five
volume bound sets of The Word are only owned by a
few collectors and libraries around the world.
By the time Mr. Percival's first book, Thinking and Destiny,
was published in 1946, he had developed a new terminology
that would enable him to better convey the results of his
thinking. This largely explains any differences between his
earlier and later works. Occasional typos were likely due
to tight monthly deadlines and the necessity of typesetting
each letter by hand. In the interest of preserving the authenticity
of these documents, for current as well as future generations,
they are reproduced here unabridged. This means that the typographical
errors, punctuation usage popular during that period, and
as much as possible the typestyle and layout, have been retained.
An Alphabetical List of the editorials
is provided below. Some of these articles contain references
to previous editorials, which are identified by Volume and
Number. To help you locate these references, we have also
included a Chronological
List (by Vol. and No.).
If you are new to Mr. Percival’s
writings you may want to first become familiar with his magnum
opus, Thinking and
